Seriously, guys, quit the bull**** back-and-forth. It's beyond old.
Honestly, just speaking personally, I think it's not at all fair to ban TrashMan from the server(s) based mostly on prior behavior here on the forums, especially when that banning was performed preemptively. Putting his forum past aside, in all my dealings with TM on the server, I never found him to be anything but agreeable and helpful; I know I'm not the only one who feels that way, either. Qaz, I'm sorry if you felt overly pressured by the requests that TM made; I can't say that I ever saw him get overly-demanding myself, at least not in front of me. Like, I don't care whether or not you get along with him on a personal level, but basing admin decisions on what happened in the past here, as opposed to how he acted on the server itself, seems like a raw deal.
That's my piece, anyway. As always, I'm not the one calling the shots, so take it for what it's worth.
